EE has announced that their EE TV device is the first set top box in the UK to get Amazon Alexa integration.
You can now your your Amazon Alexa enabled devices like the Echo and Echo Dot to control your EE TV set top box.
Customers can ask “Alexa, ask EE TV what’s on tonight?” and Alexa will respond with three recommendations provided from the same source that supplies Freeview Picks. Users can also ask about shows on any Freeview channel for either now or the following day.
The user then has the option to record any or all of the recommended shows using just their voice. This skill works whether EE TV is on or in standby mode, which ensures customers never have to miss out on their favourite programmes. It also allows them to quickly set up a recording, even as they head out the house.
